How about having Elvis officiate a faux wedding ceremony for you and your Valentine in the candle-lit Bella wine caves in Healdsburg? This is a ridiculously charming idea, one that will help you score plenty of romantic points.
Bella is hosting “Zin City” on Feb13 and 14, replete with a gyrating Elvis who doubles as a preacher for those who want to get hitched or re-hitched. The festivities are from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Staffers will be in Vegas-themed regalia, and expect pink confetti, mini-chocolate cupcakes from Velvet Crumb, top hats, rings and veils for the “weddings.” And yes, a line-up of 2008 new-release wines from Bella, including barrel samples of the 2009 Late Harvest Zinfandel.
What will a faux wedding set you back? Only $10 and the price includes all the festivities, as well as mini-chocolate cupcakes, barrel samples of the 2009 Late Harvest Zinfandel, and a tasting of five wines with an emphasis on Bella’s 2008 new-release zinfandels. No reservations are needed, but if you want to book a wedding ceremony in the wine cave chapel contact the winery in advance at (866) 573-3552. For more information, visit www.bellawinery.com. Bella is at 711 West Dry Creek.
So Romeo, what’s your game plan?
